It is a crazy world!
Hope everything will be OK when you do get back to normal.

Good evening ento.

I hope that you will not damage. This winter was very cold, even near the Mediterranean sea.

Hi Kissifrot,
I have not damage cacti, they spend the winter in a cold greenhouse, but do not receive water by October.
I live near the Mediterranean Sea, specifically near Savona in Liguria, about 150 Km from Nice.

Buona sera ento.

I am happy for your cactus.

Indeed we are almost "neighbors" (I had not seen your location).

I keep most of my cactus on a terrace covered in mini-greenhouses (the winter I protect them with plastic bubble and the veil of winter. I have good exposure,
this system works well: great amplitude of temperature).

This year I stopped watering in the middle of November -the weather was still
very
suny and warm-.

Good evening
